All the dads here just are queer in some way—and that’s that.The core message of open love between family, friends, and partners is effective, but the game avoids its sex scenes and the minefield of finding other queer folk in a predominantly heterosexual society. Dream Daddy is a kind game with funny writing and uplifting themes, but neglects the greater issues it alludes to.
The term "dating sim" is also often used incorrectly in English as a generic term for romance-driven games (ren'ai games), a subject matter which is stereotypically associated with the visual novel genre.
This can lead to confusion, as visual novels are considered a subgenre of adventure games and are not technically included in the dating sim genre.
They are also sometimes put under the category of neoromance.
The most common objective of dating sims is to date, usually choosing from among several characters, and to achieve a romantic relationship.
What is it: Dating sim about a pleasant bunch of dating dads.
